A team led by Professor Steve Roberts has been awarded a 4 year, £1.3M Platform Grant by the EPSRC. The grant will be used to underpin the strength and activities of the department’s team of over fifty researchers working on advanced structural materials for applications in nuclear fission and fusion reactors. The funding will enable us to support early-career postdoctoral researchers (ECRs) in a flexible manner tailored to their individual career trajectories, resources for mentorship, opportunities for new skills training, and allow ECRs to develop their own research ideas.
Congratulations to Susie Speller and Kyriakos Porfyrakis who have been conferred the title of Associate Professor by the MPLS Division in recognition of their important contributions to research, teaching and citizenship in the University.
Professor Peter Bruce FRS, Wolfson Chair of Materials, has been awarded the Royal Society of Chemistry's 2016 Liversidge Award for his contributions to the chemistry of energy conversion and storage, particularly pioneering the lithium-air battery, and the discovery of ionic conductivity in crystalline polymers.
